Maybelle is a lovely, plump cockroach. She lives in her own cozy little home under the refrigerator of Mr. and Mrs. Peabody. Maybelle knows it's best to stay hidden away, but she simply adores food. Just once she would love to taste something yummy before it hits the floor!

When the Peabodys invite a Very Important Guest for dinner, Maybelle can't resist. She takes a teeny taste--and splashes into the biggest adventure of her life!

Booklist Review: "Maybelle the Cockroach dreams big. Tired of food crumbs on the floor, she longs for tasty leftovers from a plate. Her friend Henry the Flea attempts wise counsel: if the Peabodys see Maybelle, they will call the Bug Man, so she better make the best of what she has. Despite Henry's advice, as Mr. and Mrs. Peabody prepare a Very Important Dinner, temptation overcomes Maybelle and she scurries into the kitchen to taste the mock turtle soup straight from the bowl. She resurfaces on the spoon of Mrs. Snodgrass, the Very Important Guest, and the ensuing panic culminates in a stay at a fancy hotel where Maybelle and Henry find their wildest dreams fulfilled. Pencil illustrations add a comic, personable touch to Maybelle and Henry and show the world from their eye level. Clear, simple language and a fast-moving plot capture the duo's wild actions, creating a fun and original early chapter book that should prove popular with all but the most squeamish of readers.--Harold, Suzanne Copyright 2007 Booklist"
